We feel so very blessed to have known Jim these past many years in Florida. He was always such a precious, fun and kind man. He introduced us to many eating places and taking us to fun events over the years. He loved our kids and grandkids and always asked about them. He gave of himself in so many little ways. Showing up in the morning with specials treats and prizes for the kids. We love that dear man and are going to greatly miss his presence in every way. We look forward to the day when we will see him face to face again in heaven. May God bless his family. Much love. David and Kandy Ridley

Sharing our memories, thoughts and prayers with all of you. From the 3 alarm chili cookouts in the winter to the hog roasts in the summer Uncle Jim will be missed by many as he always enjoyed teasing everyone to share a laugh. Times like this reinforces the fact we should all make the most of each precious day here on earth. May his soul rest in peace.

Stinky, What a great person and an awesome friend. Never knew what he was going to do next, when he was with you, but always in Fun. I miss him already, but I can still see him and I can still see his smirky smile and the gleam in his eyes, I can still hear his voice. Always a pleasure to work and see you 2608!

I cherish beautiful memories of Stinky at all of the Czech dances. He was a very dear friend to my parents (Frank & Helen Vajdik) and I wish to extend my condolences to Todd and to all of Jim's family at this difficult time of their loss. He will always be remembered as a wonderful, smiling man! Until we meet again!

My prayers and deepest sympathy to the family. I first met Jim long time ago when he was a cop. Never could figure out the nickname stinky. Seen him up and down the road a lot in his golf cart. Always waved and smiled.
